Opportunities in the NHS conference
On the morning of 30th March, a group of Year 12 & Year 13 students from TENC attended the Opportunities in the NHS conference in Kettering. The Chief Executive of Northamptonshire NHFT introduced a series of workshops targeting how to get into careers in the NHS, specifically via the apprenticeship route. Students were shown different job roles in the NHS and speakers talked about their personal career journeys. Current apprentices were available to receive questions and students were given practical help to set up their NHS jobs account on www.jobs.nhs.uk
Ashleigh Massingham, a Year 12 Health & Social Care student commented: ‘My favourite workshop was the one led by the UNISON speaker about Confidence and Motivation. He was really enthusiastic and interesting’.
